“From the project’s inception our one goal was to make the Rules easier to understand and apply for all golfers” said Thomas Pagel senior managing director of Governance for the USGA.
“Can you tell me which sport really developed because of an event? None. It’s a champion who pushes the young people and develops the sport” Riboud said. “That’s what Yannick Noah Roland Garros and Jean-Claude Killy did. We need a champion. Perhaps it’s crazy but that’s the thing we have to dream about it.”
“By providing this opportunity and shining a brighter light on this important segment of the sport we expect role models to emerge who will help inspire a new generation of golfers.”
